The Steel Rooms Baristas

The Steel Rooms Barista 006

The The Steel Rooms team took a morning off for Barista training with the talented Hannah from Peros.

We were taught the origins of coffee,  bean grinding techniques, creating the perfect espresso, stretching milk for perfect creamy cappuccinos  and lastly Hannah showed us how to create “cappuccino art” which clearly takes a bit of practice judging by our efforts!  Not long now until our own machine is installed and you can test our skills with a double shot of espresso to start your day.  The Steel Rooms team are now wired with caffeine because yes, we got to drink all the coffee!
